Bush Music Club Friday Night Session - The Brutal Art of Parody
Friday 7th March 2008

By Sandra Nixon
Posted Friday, February 1, 2008

Bush Music Club is reviving the Friday night session, the Beer & Cheese Nights, 8-10pm, once a month.

Tritton Hall

Arguably, almost everything we call a "folk song" could be called a "parody" - in the sense that every song changes and grows into new times and needs.

However, that's not what this session is all about!

What we want is every clever parody ... perhaps some vintage John Dengate barbing the pollies ... or your own latest bit of devilry!

Bring along Songs! Poems! Recitations! Tunes! Dances! etc

Back in the bad old days, we would have said: "Ladies bring a plate - Gents bring a bottle" ... but we know better these days. Just for starters - we want something edible on the plate ... and a decent drop in the bottle!

Enquiries: Bob (02) 9569 7244

Bush Music Club Friday Night Session - The Brutal Art of Parody
John Dengate, a humorist of note and keen on repartee. Also a deadly opponent in the debating arena. John favours as his weapons the poison-tipped pun and the metaphor to the groin. Not one to pull his punches when it comes to bagging pollies. (Martin Pearson )
